The Metal Spinner[1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic Colors. It is a mass-produced, bat-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman, and a variant of the Spinner.


The Metal Spinners are based on bats as well as the original Spinner. They have a hemisphere-shaped gray head with ears and cyan eyes have black pupils and sclera. Between their head and body, they have a pair of hook-like blades.


The Metal Spinners are used as a gameplay mechanic, as it can not be destroyed. Metal Spinners function as "stepping stones" for Sonic the Hedgehog’s Homing Attack. They are not harmed by the Homing Attack; instead, they rock from the impact. They mostly appear in Starlight Carnival.

Powers and abilities

The Metal Spinners have the ability to fly in midair by rotating their wings like propellers. They are also able to use their wings as blades to slash their opponents. They are also equipped with a durable armor that makes them immune to attacks.
